Hi,

I need a replacement front fender to fit a 17" 120.

It got damaged in the earth quake, and I was going to chop it down but the damage is to central to cut the fender back and still have anything that resembles or functions as a fender.

Fenders and side covers on my bike are plastic. Cuts down on weight, as the things already got me and a heavy ass v4 engine.

So need a completely new fender.

Yeah, but I think the price for Tonys work is a bit rich for my blood.

What would you guys normally use to tidy up the curves on this fender? I've trimmed it to suit, with a cut off disc, but still is pretty rough.

Yeah I wasn't meaning the bondo

Like the cuts I've made to the fender... they arent all that smooth running.

I'm guessing something like a table sander is the way to go?

I use a little hand grinder running off a compressor. The big grinder takes too much out so its easy to bugger it up.

Sweet. Probably can't do much work on it for next few weeks as I'm on crutches.


Tell ya what, having a needle put through your ankle to the middle of the cartilage tunnel really sucks.

Accept the reason for it was that a ditch runs along side the walkway to the toilets, and there are no flood lights.
